Horse Racing betting tips: Gary Savage rows in with Arctic at Kelso

Sunday's racing takes in action over the jumps from Punchestown and Kelso, as well as the flat at Lingfield, and Gary Savage from the Racing Post gives his selections from across the cards.

Gary Savage's tips:

12.50 Kelso - Blow The Budget @ 10/3
1.50 Kelso - Arctic Row @ 11/4
2.30 Lingfield - Pablo Prince @ 10/1 
3.20 Kelso - Red Happy @ 7/2

12.50 Kelso - Blow The Budget @ 10/3

It's not often that you get to see form put to the test as comprehensively as this one's last time out fifth at Ayr was yesterday, but the 12.35 at Wetherby had three runners from his race all meeting again.

It's very encouraging that sixth home Spit Spot, who the tip gave 3lb to when finishing in front of him at Ayr, was able to split the useful-looking winner and the 116 rated third.

The other two from the race were in contention until late and there was enough encouragement to think that a mark of 97 looks workable, especially with useful amateur Jack Power taking off 7lbBlow.

Gary Savage's tip:

Blow The Budget @10/3 - 1pt win

1.50 Kelso - Arctic Row @ 11/4

Nick Alexander continues to enjoy a fine season, with one of the highlights being a four-timer at Ayr last month, and the star of that day can follow up here off a 9lb higher mark.

Arctic Row was always considered a chaser by his trainer but was on something of a recovery mission on his second start over fences after a blunder and slipped saddle put paid to his initial outing.

He was all the rage at Ayr and supporters never had a moment's worry as he easily accounted for an admittedly limited field.

Veteran Ardera Cross was second, and although he is now 13, he was running over his favourite course and distance and proved that by winning next time from effectively 5lb higher.

With the less testing surface here suiting the selection better than last time, Arctic Row is fancied to account for this field of exposed older horses.

Gary Savage's tip:

Arctic Row @ 11/4 - 2pt win

2.30 Lingfield - Pablo Prince @ 10/1

Karen Jewell's consistent six-year-old looks to have returned in good order after a break and with conditions and jockey booking looking ideal, he can notch his fourth course win.

He put up two really decent efforts before Christmas, both here over a furlong shorter, and they should tee him up nicely for this prize.

His three wins have all come here, two of them in January and two of them under Sunday's jockey Rab Havlin. 

They were off marks only 1lb and 2lb lower than today's in Class 6 company so a good run looks assured.

Gary Savage's tip:

Pablo Prince @ 10/1 - 1pt win

3.20 Kelso - Red Happy @ 7/2

Thanks to a very busy and productive spell for David Pipe, where he ran 35 times in less than two years,(winning seven times), it seems perfectly fair to say that Red Happy remains well handicapped despite winning his last three races.

The first of those was his last start for Pipe, while his last two runs have been for his new trainer George Bewley who has evidently found the key to him.

Now rated 116 after two cosy victories, he's still 12lb and 11lb lower than for two handicap chase victories in 2022.

Jet Legs, who has always promised plenty, got off the mark over fences at the third time of asking and will hopefully be popular to follow up, but I prefer the tried and tested claims of Red Happy.

Gary Savage's tip:

Red Happy @7/2 - 1pt win
